parallel sessions

In the afternoon parallel sessions we present work of three of the University of Twente’s multidisciplinary strategic programmes, but moreover we provide the opportunity for visitors to pitch their visions, solutions, problems, questions or ideas for collaboration related to the specific topic and discuss with the audience.
